Defending champions Chennaiyin FC will be playing against former champions in ATK in the fifth season of the Indian Super League on Friday.
ATK’s project of restoring the glory has finally picked up its pace. The team is winning games but also scoring goals. They will be looking to make most of this momentum in the upcoming fixtures, as Steve Coppell would want to hit the iron when it’s hot. The formation finally makes sense and the balance of the team is in a good synergy. If ATK keeps this style of football up, they might end up playing in the playoffs.
However, Chennaiyin FC have finally registered their first point of the season. They were struggling for form and have been conceding goals easily. The striking department still needs more energy. Jeje Lalpekhlua has not started the last two games and would be looking to make his coach believe of his abilities. He is proven goal-scorer and can turn things around on his own if he is at the top of his game.

ATK vs CFC Dream 11 Team Predictions-
For some reason, Chennaiyin FC is not letting Jeje Lalpekhlua start the game. We have not taken him in our team and rather focus on Balwant Singh, Everton Santos and Manuel Lanzarote from ATK to fetch us the points when it comes to attack. The defence has the 2:2 ratio with two defenders from either team.
In an instance, if Jeje finally starts, this team will be fetching us a lot of points. Whatever his form might be, he only needs one goal to get back in the groove. The rest of the midfield is similar to that off the aforementioed team.
